The UK’s largest tour operator has announced more holiday cancellations and updated its list of travel destinations ahead of the next UK Government review.
TUI has confirmed its latest schedule in advance of the next update to the travel traffic light lists due next week with cancellations blamed on continuing uncertainty over foreign travel. Holidays that have been axed include trips to popular destinations, such as mainland Spain, Italy, Malta and Austria.
Green, amber and red travel lists have been updated every three weeks since they were introduced in May.
The tour operator stated: “We are continually reviewing our holiday programme and cancellations in line with Government updates every three weeks.
“If we need to cancel holidays because of updated Government guidance, or after reviewing our holiday programme, we will contact customers and aim to give at least seven days advance notice. These customers can request a full cash refund, or to change to a later date or alternative holiday with a booking incentive.”
